Mapping Yourself

Mapping Yourself

In 2017, the Santa Barbara Foundation sponsored our 3-month workshop series, Mapping Yourself. Led by CEO Rajiv Mehta, Advisor Dawn Nafus, and Susan Williams, the project was a first-of-its-kind experiment designed to see how experts in data and self-tracking can help family caregivers better understand their own caregiving activities.

The goals of the project are predicated on the assumption that self-awareness opens the door to possible improvement. We hoped that by helping the participating family caregivers to better understand their activities and how they spend their time, we’d help to empower them to make positive and thoughtful changes to how they provide care, manage their care responsibilities with other aspects of their lives, and prioritize their own well-being and needs.
